Police Taser and Dog-Bite Women Opposing War


Two War Protesters Injured During March
The Associated Press

PITTSBURGH -- Two women protesting the war in Iraq were taken to a hospital Saturday after police broke up an unauthorized march involving about five dozen people on a busy one-way street near an Army recruiting station.

David Meieran, who helped organize the protest, accused police of "inappropriate and excessive force."

Sgt. Clint Winkler, a supervisor on duty, told The Associated Press that one woman who would not leave was subdued with a Taser. He also confirmed that a police dog bit another woman on the leg when she refused police orders to disperse.

Both women and a man involved in the march were arrested, Winkler said.

"They were told to disperse, peacefully disperse, and failed to do so, so we started down the sidewalk _ officers in front, K-9's behind us, and started pushing the crowd down the sidewalk," Winkler said. He said the march broke up after the arrests.

The recruiting station was not open at the time.

In the film "The Great Escape" the inmates constructed a very clever system to help them gain freedom from their oppressors. The guards were desperate to stop any show of defiance to their rule. Some of the prisoners eventually escaped.

The peacemakers of today are like the prisoners in that internment camp. The militarists will seek to ensure their control in any way possible. Just like the Second World War ended, so will this war of extremist ideologies end one day.

There really is little that separates Jewish/White/Black/Muslim/Christian/Baha'i/etc. Supremacists from one another...

We are all God's children !
